Cars registered in the UK on or after
March 1st 2001 are taxed according to their emissions; for cars
registered before that date there's one road tax cost for engines up to
1549cc and another group for those over 1550cc.
Cars registered before March

car tax prices and bands quoted here; this is

Instead, road tax for cars is priced based on engine size (from April 2016):
Up to 1549 cc: £145
1550 cc +: £235
